Ep. 249 – Sizzix Big Shot

Sizzix Big Shot

So today I have a whopper of a show for you. While we were at CHA we stopped by the Sizzix booth and filmed the most indepth video featuring the Sizzix Big Shot that you will find. Everything you need to know about the Sizzix is talked about in the video. So grab a pen and paper, or a drink, sit back and enjoy the show!!

To find out more about the Sixxiz Big Shot you can visit the Sizzix website!

    Thanks, Christine, for this terrific information. As always, it was timely and right on the mark!

    I have a BigKick (and an original Sizzix machine that we shall not talk about), and now I’m wondering if there are differences between the BigKick and the BigShot besides color. Do you know the differences?

    Warm regards and happy creating,

    Christene, this was a great video! I am thinking about buying a cutting machine and this told me everything I could want to know about the Big Shot.
    You certainly earned your “media” pass with this video. Well done.

    Bravo! Loved this video. I have had a Big Shot for a long time and didn’t know anything about the embossing folders. I didn’t know you could move them around and they didn’t leave an outside line. Can’t wait for the alcohol inks video.
    Thank You

    This was great. I have a Big Shot and wasn’t sure I understood how to use the platform. Now I do! Thank you.

    GREAT video! Question – if I have the “older” big shot – aka – Big Kick what do I do to get silicone pad and impression plate? hmmmmmmmmm oh and what about nestabilities and other spellbinders dies?
